Our feelings of human camaraderie have prevailed — or possibly we just wish to be surrounded by more human shields in the event of an attack — and we have decided to seek out the company of the refugees fleeing along the road.
The people look tired and hungry. They have come many miles from their burning city. Suddenly, you hear the beat of huge wings coming from the north.
‘Kraan, Kraan! Hide yourselves!’ the cry goes up all along the road.
Just in front of you, a wagon carrying small children breaks down, its right wheel jammed in a furrow. The children scream in panic.
Now this is where the rubber meets the road! Or the wagon wheel gets in a rut. Or the foot falls in a puddle. Whatever, look, we’ve got a clear choice here — run like a rabbit or stand like a lion? I’ll just note that Hercules wore the skin of a lion, but not a rabbit. However, they never made a movie called “The Rabbit King” either. They did make “Watership Down”, though, which was pretty awesome. Am I rambling? Focus, Jeff, FOCUS!
In any event, look at this kids before you make your decision:
First of all, those children are clearly possessed by Satan. What they need is not a Kai Warrior but a good exorcist. Can there be any doubt the one on the right is eating her mother right now? I think not. And the baby is at least half caterpillar, which is just disgusting.
So really, the choice is whether to run away and hope to fight again, or stand up to an invading group of flying badasses in order to save the spawn of the devil. At least partly human hell children, admittedly, but hell spawn nonetheless.
So what’ll it be, and why?
